    A question I have pondered for many years.....


    In Total Recall, was the whole movie a part of the virtual reality action vacation program,

    OR

    Did everything actually go haywire?


    discuss.....


    (If you have no Idea what I'm talking about, visit http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100802/

    and GO RENT IT. It's a classic early 90's cheesy Schwarzenegger film.

    I havn't watched it in a long time but I always had the opinion that it was real.

    I never had any doubts like I had with Blade Runner.

    I think it had to have actually happened. Could you imagine a vacation where you go to mars and oxygenate (word?) it. Then fly home wake up the next day and mars be the way it was before you went on vacation. Man that would blow, all that hard work and nearly getting yourself killed for what, nothing!!

    And the chick with the 3 boobs being fake. It would just devastate a man. (though the 'you make me wish I had 3 hands' comment was funny)

    All I know is that the book don't answer the question either.

    I always thought the adventure was a Rekall implant




    spoiler on Blader Runner below



















































    Deckerd was definatly a next generation replicant so was the "daughter"

    at least that is the what I got from the book "Do Androids Dream of Electronic Sheep" by Philip K. Dick who also wrote Minority Report which starred Tom Cruise who was in "A Few Good Men" with Kevin Bacon.

    FWIW the Directors cut of Blade Runner was a completly different movie from the theatrical release. Directors cut was much slower paced with way more background and mood, while theatrical release was an action move.

    Watching the movie, I felt it was real. That like in the Matrix, he was for the first time part of the real world.
